ZX2 Discussion / Re: Kamikaze
« on: December 12, 2010, 07:40:32 PM »
cause i have the stock manifold still on it after going through 3 sets of pacesetter headers but i sort of bored out the exhaust ports a little bigger so it has more flow. only true exhaust components i have is a 2 1/4 in. custom catback exhaust with a top speed muffler which sounds pretty deep. but im afraid that the kamikaze might make it sound like a pissed off weedeater on steriods haha.

i just recently put a zxtuner cam gear on my car on the intake side. didnt really wanna put one on the exhaust side because of the vct but my car is acting up pretty bad. it starts up but sometimes has trouble starting up and whenever you push the gas alil over moderately it tries to suck for air but the engine dies. im thinking the timing belt may have jumped, but any other suggestions?

ZX2 Discussion / HEADERS

What are some good headers to buy for an escort zx2? cause i went through 3 sets of pacesetter headers and they kept cracking at the welds and whats the use of having a "performance" header if you cant have fun with it at the track so i said eff it. i ended up porting out the old stock headers and put those on but does anybody know of any good reliable headers and catalytic converters out there that are true performance headers?

also this guy who used to make turbos for the zx2 but stopped selling them cuz they were too expensive puts a t-3/ t-4 turbonetics turbo on a stock zx2 engine with 18 psi with 93 octane and made 319 hp and it runs fine..
